Step into my kitchen, my food-loving friends, as I introduce, no, reveal, a heart-healthy and palate-pleasing culinary delight – Sesame-Seared Tuna with Edamame. Consider this dish as a celebration of oceanic offerings, bound together by a symphony of oriental flavors. Like the pied piper’s melody, this dish lures you in through its aromatic whispers, sizzling sesame, crisp edamame, and velvety tuna, a tableau of colors, textures, and tastes that’s nothing short of fine art on a plate.

Ingredients List

  • 4 fresh tuna steaks (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup of black and white sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of shelled edamame (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of low-sodium soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Start by sprinkling your tuna steaks generously with salt and pepper.
2. Roll the seasoned fish in sesame seeds ensuring an even coat all around.
3. On medium-high heat, heat your oil in a non-stick frying pan, then sear the tuna, approximately two minutes each side, or until the sesame seeds form a golden crust and the fish is cooked.
4. Simultaneously, in a separate pan, sauté the minced garlic and defrosted edamame in a dollop of oil for about 5 minutes before adding the soy sauce. Cook for two more minutes until all components are well integrated.
5. Serve the sesame-seared tuna on a bed of savory edamame with a side of soya dipping sauce.

Tips and Tricks

  • Opt for sushi-grade tuna for the best flavor and texture.
